Album Review

Reviewed 2010-05-04
Heavy Ass Modern Hardcore from Beligum with the oft-used but rather good Kurt Ballou production. Some good mixing of tempos and tons of good to above-par breakdowns. In the style of Integrity, Converge, and maybe early-mid Neurosis and maybe Isis without all the fancy-pants stuff. Overall well played stuff.

(((((1)))))) Fast & hammering with some rad drumming
(((((2)))) Bursts right out and gets right to the point. Cool bass sound and tempo/tone shifts, too.
((((3)))) Burly riffs, very Converge-like sound and a pretty good build up.
(((((4))))) Fast & pummeling modern metallic hardcore with some tight breaks & a near Swedish Death Metal tone.
((((5)))) Bombastic, doom-y modern hardcore. A lot of bands sound like this nowadays but it’s the WAY R&F can pull this off that makes it work.
(((((6)))) Jangley (!) guitars and sing-song-y tempo that works extremely well. Granted the vocals still sound pretty harsh but damn this is catchy!
((7)) Redundant but short heavy hardcore. Pretty generic.
((((8)))) Odd cold-wave vibe then, slow winding Neurosis styled percussion and distorted vocals and waves of strange feedback. Interesting.
(((((9)))))) Fast & pissed off Heavy as bricks Hardcore.
(((((10)))) Watery, erm, “psychedelic slow & doomy hardcore”?? Yeah that and it’s rather good.
